By IANR News
Steve Thomas, a DWFI Faculty Fellow and river and stream ecologist at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s School of Natural Resources, has been chosen to serve as the next president of the Society for Freshwater Science.
The societies purpose “is to promote further understanding of freshwater ecosystems (rivers, streams, lakes, reservoirs, and estuaries) and ecosystems at the interface between aquatic and terrestrial habitats (wetlands, bogs, fens, riparian forests, and grasslands).”
Thomas’ research focuses on how the flow of water links upstream and downstream habitats and how ecological interactions propagate from one location to another. He has served in several leadership roles with the Society for Freshwater Sciences, will serve as president-elect this coming year and become president in May 2022.
